[NASL SCHEDULE: Week 9] The Atlanta Silverbacks will look to extend their lead in the NASL when they host FC Edmonton on Saturday, while three other teams -- Carolina RailHawks, Minnesota United FC, and Tampa Bay Rowdies -- could overtake the surprise leaders if they slip up.

One of Atlanta's two losses was a 3-0 defeat to FC Edmonton is their first meeting.

"We're looking at every game as if it's a playoff game," said Silverbacks coach Brian Haynes. "Sure, we have gotten off to a good start this season, but there is still a lot of soccer to be played. As far as I'm concerned, we're going to take it one game at a time and focus on what we need to do, not what the other teams are doing."

Two points separate the top four teams.
The Carolina RailHawks put their season's unblemished home record on the line when the defending NASL champion Tampa Bay Rowdies come to visit Cary on Saturday. The two teams, both still alive in the U.S. Open Cup, are tied for second place, one point behind Atlanta and one ahead of Minnesota United FC, which hosts the Fort Lauderdale Strikers at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome.
